Sunday dawned dull with blustery showers even though the weathermen said it would be fine but after the strong winds and wintery snow and hailstone showers of previous days it seemed positively balmy! We decided to go inland this week and c... Read more

The weathermen said it would be an indian summer and so far they ain't wrong! We haven't had very good weather at all this year, we've been from one extreme to the other with hot & dry, drought, torrential rain, flooding and cold strong winds ... Read more
